BENEFITING: Entrepreneurship Institute
My fundraiser would be to help start a small business. It's to help open a sewing and alteration/clothing store. The business not only includes being able to come in and have your clothing repaired or altered to fit best; it also would be a clothing store, where people can donate your clothing, and be transformed into something more. The name stems from being able to stitch old pieces to create something new. With the way the diets are, and weight fluxuations, not a lot of people want to spend a lot of money on a new waredrobe. They would be able to come in, and have their clothing fit to whats best for them. Why spend 20 dollars a new shirt, when you can come and have your favorite shirt fit you for 7-10 dollars? Not only that, you have a favorite jacket or coat with a broken zipper, and don't want to spend 60-100 dollars for a new one; come to my store and have it fixed for only 20. It'll be more than that though, with clothing donations I would be able to take pieces from one shirt and stitch it together with another, and would create something no one has seen/owned before. This store would have new and monsterous creations for those looking for something more.
